About SwampFox Alerts

The Swampfox Emergency Alert System has been adopted by Francis Marion University in order to quickly notify students via SMS text messaging and email in the event there is an imminent campus emergency. Although this system is optional, all students are encouraged to register. By registering you will automatically be sent critical alerts, notifying you of dangerous incidents of a threatenting nature. You may also opt in for other alerts.

What is SwampFox Alerts?
Francis Marion University has developed an emergency notification system to be used to notify the campus community of emergencies that might threaten the health and safety of the FMU community. This system will use a variety of methods to notify community members when a threat exists.
      1. Emergency Siren System
      2. Voicemail Notification to University Staff
      3. Email Notification
      4. SMS Text Messaging (Optional)

As a student you are required to provide an email address when registering for classes. That email address will be one of the methods used to communicate with you in the event of a threat. In addition to your email address you can sign up to receive text messages to your cell phone. Although this is optional, you are encouraged to sign up.


Why should I subscribe?
As a student you are required to provide an email address when registering for classes. That email address will be one of the methods used to communicate with you in the event of a threat. In addition to your preferred email address you can sign up to receive text messages to your cell phone as well as an additional email account. Although this is optional, you are encouraged to register for the notification system.

What's involved?
You need your SwampFox ID and password to get started. Once you decide to subscribe, you'll be guided step-by-step through the subscription process. You can log back into the system anytime to change your cell phone information.

How does the notification system work?
During an urgent situation, the SwampFox Alerts system will send an alert using the email account you provided AND a text message to the cell phone number that you registered. When you receive the message, it is very important that you pay close attention to all instructions from FMU officials.

NOTE: Standard text messaging rates apply.
